The 36 year old female and 29 year old male were located walking together in the downtown area of Port Elgin and both were known to be wanted for various offences.

Officers of the Saugeen Shores approached them and the male was taken into custody. When officers went to arrest the female, she attempted to pull away from the officer and was swinging her arms. A struggle involving  two uniform officers ensued and an off-duty officer had to assist to restrain the female and take her into custody. No injuries to the female or officers were reported.

The male and female were found to be in possession of small quantity of crystal methamphetamine and drug use paraphernalia, multiple items believed to have been stolen, a quantity of “break-in tools”, gloves, and a mask (disguise).

All four arrested persons have been charged. Three persons were released with future court
